BACKPACKER Map Maker Pro is the ultimate trip planning app your iPad. Plan backpacking and camping trips, and other outdoor adventures on detailed, interactive topo maps and aerial photos. Get instant access to more than 68,000 topographic maps in the US and Canada.

Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

***NEW MAP PACKS! Save maps onto your iPad for viewing out of network.***
• View seamless topo maps by MyTopo. MyTopo takes the base maps offered by the USGS and enhances them with stunning shaded relief from the most up-to-date information available for topographic mapping. Topo maps are 1:24K scale in the Lower 48 states, 1:63K in Alaska and 1:50K in Canada.
• Store maps on your device for use in remote backcountry areas without a data connection.
• Two maps are better than one when you use dual mode. Map Maker lets you overlay two map types on top of each other for the best trip planning experience.
• Utilize five map types: street, hybrid, terrain, topographic and aerial.
• Save maps for offline viewing. No network connection is needed once you store maps on your iPad.
